RIYADH — Yemen’s Houthis are an indivisible part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and are subject to the IRGC’s orders, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said on Thursday.
He added that this was confirmed by the Houthi targeting of facilities in the Kingdom.
In a series of tweets on his official account, Al-Jubeir said the Houthis proved that they implemented Iran’s agenda “by sacrificing the need of the Yemeni people for the benefit of Iran”.
On Tuesday, the Houthi militias claimed responsibility for twin drone strikes on Saudi Arabia’s main East-West oil pipeline. Iran has repeatedly threatened to close the vital conduit for global oil supplies in case of a military confrontation with the United States.
Several Arab countries have condemned the attacks on two oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia, with Egypt adding that coordination with the Kingdom was at the highest level to counter any challenges and threats.
